Welcome to Næstved
The largest city in the region, Næstved has a thousand years of history, but despite a scattering of medieval buildings, including two splendid 13th-century churches, the attractions are too diffuse to create a memorable impression. On the western edge of town there's a decent zoo (www.naestvedzoo.dk) and the impressive island estate house of Gavnø Slot (www.gavnoe.dk). In nearby Fenmark is the famous glassworks, Holmegaard Glasværker (www.holmegaard.dk), and beside Rte 54 east of town you'll find the major theme park, BonBon Land (http://bonbonland.dk). More sedate types can explore the lakes and forests to the south and west, or join the happy throngs at seaside Karrebæksminde.
